These are pretty rare. I don’t mind too very much that no one’s really looking in the same direction.

My baby is five months old

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Koen turned five months the other day. I said he was four months in the video no doubt being confused by the fact that he just had a four month wellness visit a week ago. Also, I don’t keep track of his tiny milestones quite as nicely as I did with his big brother.

Koen is still working on holding his head up while laying on his tum tum, sometimes raising himself to an elbow prop position and rolling over somewhat.

He measured in at 14 lbs which I thought was fabulous considering the smaller size of his brother and sister at this same age.

I’ve mentioned in past posts (I think) that Koen has had breathing problems, mainly manifest in a continual cough. At the four month check I brought this up to the doctor who made a diagnosis of baby asthma. The inhaler that the doctor gave on a two week perscription seems to do the trick; Koen sleeps better and laughs more…it’s like he’s finally enjoying his life here with up and that’s a great thing.

my new look

After hours and hours of labor intensive back combing courtesy of Kayla, Rebecca and GrammaMomma, I now have dreadlocks!

I think that I need three more up front, if anyone is willing to help me with that…

Baby Dreadies

Deeder says that my hair is, “keepy”

Thank you, Kayla and Rebecca for all your time…I can’t believe it’s only half way done after all your work. I imagine if you’d known it would take so long…well, I guess it’s to my advantage that you didn’t know?

I promise that I’ll try to think of something really nice to do for you in return.

To those of you who agree with Deeder on my hair being creepy: These new locks should look much more attractive in a few months. :)

quiet time!

Today I’m REALLY hoping that my kids will nap.

If they do, my sisters Kayla and maybe Rebecca will come over and hopefully finish my dreads. I put in the first four last Friday, then Wednesday night the girls put in 11 more and sectioned the rest of my hair. Caring for my new locks will be so much easier when it’s all done–nap kids, please nap.

As I was cleaning up the kitchen I noticed that my constantly rambunctious Deeder and Carly were both as quiet as could be. Knowing that neither one of them could be asleep, I set out to investigate.

After checking the bathroom and bedrooms I found them in the living room sitting in Koen’s little bed by the window. The two had their dolls and were whispering to each other, a one minute and ten seconds of peace . Certainly welcome change from yelling and pummeling tough love that they often practice between themselves.
